#MOTD – Gig time!


This is my makeup I wore to see Bring Me The Horizon at the Bournemouth International Centre!

For my eyes I did a cut crease, as they’re my favourite at the moment, using my Urban Decay Naked 2 palette. For my crease I used Tease and blended out, and layered Busted over the top and blended that out too. I used the shade Blackout to define the outer corners, and to define my crease.

I whited out my eyelids using my NYX Concealer Jar in CJ01 – Porcelain, which helps define the cut of my crease and eyelid. I set the concealer using my Rimmel Stay Matte pressed powder in Transparent. On top of my eyelid I used YDK and Verve– to create a silvery, pale pink shade. I used my Kat Von D Ink liner in Trooper to create a classic wing.


I added my falsie, which were my Eylure x Fleur De Force Fleur Loves 3/4 lashes, full review here – these are my fave for not looking OTT! I used my Urban Decay Perversion mascara to blend my natural lashes to the falsies. For my eyebrows I opted to draw them in, using my Benefit Goof Proof pencil in Dark, and my Ready, Set Brow! in clear.

For my foundation I used the NYX Angel Veil primer to prime my skin ready, and used my NYX Stay Matte Not Flat in Ivory as my base. I used my Bourjois’ Blur The Lines concealer in Ivory under my eyes and as my highlighter. I used Bourjois’Mat Illusion Bronzer in Hale Clair to define and contour my cheekbones and nose. I set my concealer and foundation using my Rimmel Stay Matte pressed powder in Transparent. To add my glow, I used my NYX Strobe of Genius palette to highlight using the light shimmery shade, 4th shade clockwise from top left, along my cheekbones, nose, cupids bow and temples.

My lipstick is the amazing Studded Kisses by Kat Von D in Magick – I love this lipstick as it is a beautiful shade with a purple tint and glitter!! As usual, I set it all using my Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray and it lasted the entire gig!



Rimmel London Lasting Finish by Kate in Rock ‘N’ Roll


Rimmel London Lasting Finish by Kate in Rock N Roll

Beautiful, peachy pink creamy nude!

I’ve always been a huge fan of Rimmel London’s lipsticks, and their latest collection of Lasting Finish by Kate are adorable. They’ve released six new shades – three of which are red based and three that are nudes – for their 15 year celebration.

The one that is my fave is Rock ‘N’ Roll nude, which is the lightest of all the nudes. It’s such a lovely peachy nude shade and goes with everything. I like to wear this as my day out lipstick as it compliments any eye makeup I decide to wear!

The lipstick is creamy and easy to apply, and lasts a long while even after drinking and eating. You do need to line your lips with a shade darker if you want better definition though.

The packaging on these six shades are amazing! Rimmel have re-vamped their lipsticks in a rose gold with silver accent – which makes these so chic and on trend. I’m a sucker for rose gold packaging!

Bottom Line: Lovely, creamy peachy nude lipstick which is perfect for the daytime!
